Product Information
The RoadAngel 6000 combines GPS satellite navigation and a speed camera safety alert system in one slimline, lightweight unit.

The safety alert system indicates the advisory speed limit and whether you are above or below it by turning the screen green or red. It will alert you to speed cameras, accident blackspots, primary schools and congestion charging.

The comprehensive safety data is updated daily by a dedicated team and can be transferred quickly and easily to your unit via USB (requires an annual subscription of £49).

The RoadAngel 6000 also comes preloaded with UK street level mapping, a full post code search facility and a 200MHz processor. Navigate door to door with clear sound voice instructions, full colour 2D or 3D maps and automatic rerouting.

A built-in charger means it can be used on foot and doesn't need to be hard wired or powered from the car lighter. Its ready to use straight out of the box and features an impressive 8 hour battery life. This versatile model can also be used as an MP3 player and a photo viewer.

i have read very mixed reviews about this satnav. I currently have a sony NU500 but would prefer one with speed camera database. Should i be happy with what i've got or is this a good investment?

Very wise to have cancelled, pedroman.
I had one of these which was great for the speed camera alerts - imo second to none.
However imo the navigation system was absolute rubbish - it sent me around housing estates instead of a direct route, up dirt tracks etc.
I soon got a refund and now have the Garmin Nuvi 310 which is absolutely fantastic.

i have just ordered 1, if the speed camera is second to none that is cool and if the sat nav aint all that its cool cos i got that street garmin and have NEVER had a problem with it so i can just get one of them double connectors,

cheers

Can I ask what software version yours was running?

oh shengis i hope ur gonna say the new update is abosolutely fantastic on the sat nav now lol

Not fantastic no, but a VERY big improvement. On v1 (which this WILL come with) you have to type full addresses into the search. The good news is, a quick email to Blackspot customer support with an upgrade request will result in a V3 software disk through the post in days. Considering the V3 version sells in Halfords for £180 this deal is pretty good. As to the reviews... Notice when it was reviewed, V1 software back then, also reviewers take into account the price and most were reviewed at £200+.

Problem wise, yes it is sh*te if you have a UV/heated screen. So is the Tomtom. My father in law has a hell of a time with his tomtom in his C5, just because of their poxy screens. So bear that in mind as an external antenna (mMCX) 'may' be needed.

And seriously, don't forget Quidco on this one as it's worth £6.45 (JL give it on £129 rather than voucher price) ;-)

Hi shengis

Don't know what version it was but I bought it around February and installed all the updates via the internet
#14
If you are lucky enough to get one of the reduced-price Garmin Nuvi 300 from ASDA then that is a much better deal

The internet updates only do the speed camera database/.firmware but not the actual software. I nearly got into an arguement with some dozy cow at blackspot when she said that was the most up to date software. Did yours have a choice of male/female voice directions? V1 only has female so thats the most noticable indication 'out of the box'.

By the way, if you want some dirt track fun try MS Autoroute, it's brilliant for that, i'm sure it was designed for military vehicles:giggle:

My garmin i3 has had me up places a horse would have struggled:x
#17
so with the update to V3, is this a good deal? Or, to be more clearer, is it a good sat nav? (Compared with sony nvu50)

cheers
#18
Don't buy it on my advice. All i'm saying is i'm happy with it as I don't have a fancy windscreen so it works perfectly for me (9/10 sats average). For comparison it uses pretty much the same software as the no-name GPS Maplin were selling for £99 a while back, but with the added speed camera database/warnings. Blackspot also have a good technical department and they even CALL YOU to sort out any issues you may have. How often does that happen? At the end of the day, it does the job it was designed to do.

im buying it more for the speed camera really so this seems like a good deal plus over £6 quidco cannot complain

Just bear in mind that you have to pay £3.99 a month for the updates after the first 6 months:thumbsup:

Must have been V1 - think it only had female voice and I didn't get a CD to update.
V3 might be better but once bitten twice shy - I'll stick with my Nuvi 310

Just reading the Asda thread and have a question. Does yours have speed camera database and if so is it directional? One thing I have noticed on the RA is that it only warns of cameras if you are actually travelling in the direction they can catch you, so for example on a dual carriageway, if the cameras on the other side of the road no warning, your side and it goes mental.....
#23
yeah i knew about the price but on this deal it dont state u get 6 months free, so do you or dont you in this deal?
is there a speed camera device that can pick up mobile hand camaras?

cheers
#24
If you go here it shows that they include the 1st 6 months free. You need to register the unit/subscribe. Once thats done go here and register again, put in a support ticket and request a software upgrade disk:thumbsup:

I was also told that navteq are releasing new maps around november so might be worth getting back in contact then to try to blag a copy of them as well:whistling:
#25
Hey SHENGIS thanks alot buddy:thumbsup: , you have helped alot, keep an eye out in this thread incase i need more help m8:oops:

ur a credit m8
#26
The Talex Lite warns of mobile speed camera locations.The roadangel claims to do this too but i didnt think it did.This does not have the laser alert either.
#27
so what cameras have the laser alert then, i thought that the only thing it didnt detect was hand held 1's

maybe some1 can help me with what this will actually pick up, starting to get confused now :oops:

cheers

The road angel navigator doesnt have the laser alert.Only the Road Angel + has this.Its to warn you of mobile cameras they use a laser to determine your speed.
#29
can i buy an add on for it
banned#30
bluemark

No you cant, and I believe all real time laser/radar detectors are to be outlawed immenently anyway
#31
what so does this mean that the ROAD ANGEL NAVIGATOR 6000 is going to be ILLEGAL soon??
#32
No only the road angel + and compact models will be illegal but the laser feature can be disabled via software.The navigator 6000 is 100% legal.
#33
Have the govenrment fianlly made up their mind about laser/radar detectors then? Thought it was going back aug-nov this year? Can't be arsed to check though tbh.

Bluemark: The 6000 relies on the GPS to warn of cameras/vans. Basically when you download the database it includes known van locations, so as soon as you get within the area they normally hang out in it gives a van warning. Not particularly accurate and not to be relied upon tbh, but the fixed camera bit works quite well (and the blackspot warnings).
#34
nice 1, anyway id rather they gave out an alert to say there COULD BE a mobile unit about just to air on ths side of caution than not go off at all and get me the ticket :-D
#35
So the software upgrade for the satnav, are they doing this for everyone or is it just the first few that ask? I remeber my brother once took me to somewhere in kent with his ra navigator and what should have been a 1.5 hour journey ended up being a 4 hour journey.
#36
like i said in my personal circumstance i only want it for the speed cameras as i have a sat nav that i can run simutaniously with it
#37
i have just submitted a ticket do i just ask for the newest version software update disc??
or
do i have to ask for something else

cheers
#38
"Hi, i've just bought a Road Angel Navigator 6000 but upon using it I find it has the old v1 software card. Can you send me a disk with the v3 software on it cheers."

;-) :whistling:

Oh and I would recommend buying a bigger SD card, just in case you want to chuck photos/mp3 on it as well.
#39
firmware on the unit says 3.10 in big then underneath 1.61 whats that all about mate
#40
Don't worry about that. The lates firmware is 1.89 and can be downloaded from the RA website. I installed it, did a trial run, got home and reset it to 1.61 lol. Eject the SD card on the unit and it should say v1.0 on it. Its the main software that needs the upgrade, not the firmware.
